British actress and comedienne Miranda Hart is desperate to retrieve a stolen laptop containing vital work for her upcoming Tv projects.

The Call The Midwife funnywoman's computer was taken during a burglary at her London home on Saturday night (12Oct13), and she has been left panic-stricken at losing dozens of comedic ideas which were stored on the device.

She hasn't revealed exactly which projects she is working on, but it is likely the laptop contained material for her forthcoming stand-up tour My, What I Call, Live Show.

Hart is now offering an undisclosed reward for the return of the computer and has taken to to plead with the thieves to hand it over.

She writes, "If people who stole my laptop... (are) out there. Please please please return. Precious creative projects all lost. Will reward. Rt (retweet)."
